I haven't read all the replies, but I'd say that natural child birth IS for wimps!
NCB may be for you if:
You're horrified by the idea of getting a needle your spine
You're concerned about the known and unknown effects of labor drugs on you & your baby
You'd like to avoid a catheter
You think a pitocin-induced labor sounds like hell on earth
You don't like stirrups, the lithotomy position, vacuum extractions or forceps
You want to avoid an episiotomy or C section and the ensuing recovery
People will never cease to amaze me. I just had emergency dental work due to an infected tooth and horrible pain, but my dentist was great about it.
Yes, labor hurts but it's pain with a purpose. Dental work has no purpose other than torture.
I would write your dentist a letter also to tell her that you didn't appreciate her comment and she should refrain from any commentary in the future.
